Billions of Wind Turbine Blades Built With Balsa Wood Stripped From Amazon’s Forests

Green groups are starting to rumble the fact that wind power ain’t so green, after all. Giant industrial wind turbines comprise hundreds of tonnes of steel, aluminium, plastics, copper and rare earths used in the generator’s magnets. There is also at least a tonne of gear oil and hydraulic fluid on board. And then there’s […]

Dirty Truth About ‘Clean’ Technologies: Or The True Cost of Climate Virtue Signalling

If ‘green’ means squandering the world’s resources, then wind and solar fit the bill, but if it’s about ‘saving the planet’, then they’re an almighty fraud. Having operated in this space since December 2012, when it comes to wind and solar industry spin and propaganda, STT has seen it all and heard it all. Wind […]

Permanent Legacy: Wind Industry Plans to Abandon Millions of 500 Tonne Concrete Wind Turbine Bases

Decommissioning wind turbines at the end of their economic lifespan (which is around 10 to 15 years, not the 25 years touted by the wind industry) is one of those phenomenally expensive exercises that the wind power outfit itself will never willingly pay for. Already past their use-by date, thousands of these things around the […]

Court Out: Judge Finds Gas-Fired Power Better For Environment Than Wind & Solar

All care and no responsibility, the wind and solar advocate is quick to ignore every environmental downside that comes with wind turbines and solar panels. However, the Minnesota Court of Appeals wasn’t ready to accept the argument that wind and solar are as gentle on the environment as the sunshine and breezes that occasionally power […]

Germany’s Forests Trashed to Make Way for Thousands of Giant Industrial Wind Turbines

  You know it’s a cult when followers happily justify clear-felling forests to make way for giant industrial wind turbines. Those that worship wind power have set new standards in cognitive dissonance. One minute they’re ranting about saving the planet; the next they’re leading the charge in its immediate and permanent destruction. Germany’s so-called ‘Greens’ […]

Destination Destruction: Wind and Solar ‘Transition’ Devouring Planet’s Dwindling Resources

Miners love wind and solar – demand for iron ore and coal has never looked rosier, and at the heart of every Electric Vehicle, solar panel and wind turbine there’ a bevy of rare minerals which are fast becoming rarer, thanks to our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future and the […]

Demolition Squad: What Happens to Worn Out Wind Turbines? They Get Blown to Bits

With an economic lifespan of around 15 years, thousands of these things are already on life support and hundreds are already terminal. When their palliative care reaches the end-of-life phase, it’s time to call in the demolition squad to do their darndest. The video below of 90 Mitsubishi turbines being dropped to earth with tons […]

Jumbo Noise Problem: Africa’s Elephants Hate Thumping Droning Wind Turbine Noise

Thumping, grinding wind turbine noise has always been the elephant in the room for the wind industry. Now, it’s the elephants themselves who’ve signalled just how annoying low-frequency wind turbine noise is. Renowned for their acutely sensitive hearing in the lower frequency register, the long-distance communication between Africa’s elephants is being drowned out by an […]

It Just Ain’t Green: Endless Environmental Havoc Caused By Industrial Wind & Solar Power

The true environmental and social cost of intermittent wind and solar is simply staggering. Millions of solar panels are already being dumped in landfill, and millions of nonrecyclable wind turbine blades are joining them; altogether creating a toxic legacy the generation who blindly championed so-called ‘green’ energy. However, long before the panels and blades get […]

Black Forest’s Bleak Future: German Wilderness Wiped Out to Make Way For 1,000 Wind Turbines

Apparently, turning wilderness into smouldering ash is all for the greater good, provided it’s to make way for 260m high/300 tonne industrial juggernauts, aka wind turbines. Germany has speared over 30,000 of these things across its countryside. As land for doing so has become increasingly scarce, the strategy has been to clear-fell forests that were […]
